Brattleboro Eclipse Viewing

Today's the day for the solar eclipse. It won't be total here, but some eclipsing will happen early this afternoon. Here's what the National Weather Service in Albany says says:

"Although the high pressure area will continue to depart, it will remain close enough to the area to keep it precip free through the day today. Much attention is being given to the sky cover forecast, due to the partial solar eclipse that will occur this afternoon. Based on the 3km HRRR, sky cover should be fairly sunny for much of the area through the day. There could be some passing scattered high clouds for areas south of Albany this afternoon, but sky cover will generally be fairly clear. The time of max eclipse at Albany is around 2:42 pm edt, with the peak obscuration around 66 percent. Be sure to protect your eyes if you plan to view the eclipse and check our social media outlets for additional info."

SeVWA's 2017 E. coli Monitoring of Local Rivers Continued August 16th

The Southeastern Vermont Watershed Alliance (SeVWA) continued its monitoring program for the summer of 2017 on Wednesday, August 16th. Volunteers this year are collecting samples from 34 sites on nine rivers and streams every other week through the end of August. This year, we have sites on the West River, Flood Brook, North Branch Ball Mountain Brook, Rock River, Williams River (including the Middle Branch), Saxtons River, East Putney Brook, Sacketts Brook, and Whetstone Brook.

The days leading up to August 16th were hot and humid, with the majority of sites experiencing no rainfall in the 24 hours before samples were collected. Most of our sites tested below the “suitability for swimming” standard set by the State of Vermont and the US Environmental Protection Agency. The dry conditions in the 24-48 hours leading up to testing set the stage for safe conditions for swimming and boating. Because heavy rains can cause spikes in bacteria, is generally recommended to wait 24-48 hours after a significant rainfall to resume swimming in lakes and streams.
